Hi, Volhout.

I like it, and I will try it as soon as I have a chance to buy a new USB stick.

Let's make sure I've got all this straight:

Quote:
Copy your current USB stick to a second USB stick.

What would be the preferred method of making the copy? Just <cp sdb sdc>? Or <dd sdb sdc>? Or copy the files over one by one?

Keep in mind that the current stick was made in Windows, and that it has a a bunch of boot file things on it, including a little program (bootinst.bat) that created a partition table and MBR (I think).

Quote:
Copy the complete iso file to the second USB stick

The unopened rc2 iso, right?

Quote:
Remove save file.

Boot the second USB stick. You are running puppeee-atom without save file.

Open the iso on the USB stick with ROX

How do I do that, by double-clicking it?

Will ROXfiler be working without the save file?

Or should I use Filmnt or ISO master (if they are working without the save file)?

Quote:
Open sdb1 (your USB stick) with ROX

Well, I would have to do this before opening the rc2 iso, right?

Quote:
Copy the puppeee......sfs file from the iso to sdb1, overwriting the original sfs file (make sure the name is the same, so you actually overwrite the original). This works since puppeee is ful running in RAM, and doesn't mind you killing it's mother untile you reboot...

An interesting experiment <grin>.

Quote:
Reboot, without saving....

Still no save file, huh?

Quote:
Voila, you have puppeee 4.4 RC2....in a dirty way....

Clever. If it works. . .

Quote:
Now try if RC2 frisbeee does what you expect from it. If it does, and you are happy, you can can try to recover your original save file to RC2. This may or may not work....

That should work. I have switched between save files in 4.4-atom.

Quote:
Insert the original USB stick, and reboot (without saving) the PC.

You mean shut down, without saving, the second stick with rc2 on it?

Quote:
Select to boot from the original puppeee-atom.

No selection required. Puppeee-atom always boots all by itself.

Quote:
Running puppeee-atom, copy the save file from USB stick 1 to 2, and shutdown puppeee-atom.

Okay.

Quote:
Get your puppeee-atom stick out, and reboot into puppeee RC2.
You may be lucky, and your data will be accepted by puppeee RC2.

Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Mike
